    Only response I get out of my DX is the green light when I plug it in....

    I was watching netflix on my DX feel asleep...woke up to a dead phone that wouldn't turn on...tried a fresh battery nothing...battery pull no luck...can't get into recovery or bootloader mode...the only response is to plug it into the wall charger and get a flash green light in the top left corner...then pull the battery and unplug and it flashes again but won't turn on....

    Need help....ideas please

    DX all over your face...

    Try to let that one charge for about 30 minutes and see if it comes on...if the green light is on, it's likely just too low to boot up.

    If that one doesn't charge after a while, try to charge the other battery.

    What exactly do you mean by it overheats when you leave it plugged into the wall charger? How can you tell that it overheats?

    If it won't boot at all, there's not a lot that we can do...either try to charge to get it to boot, or if it's a hardware issue, you'll have to take it to Verizon. We can't really do anything for a hardware issue like that, if that's what it is...

    I'm thinking the battery charger might not be functioning...I'd try the wall charger

    Pull the battery, plug the phone in to the charger. Let it sit for a minute. Unplug, put the battery in, plug the charger back in.

    Droid X's will sometimes give you nothing but a green light if you run the battery completely dry.



    If that doesn't work, then give it a bit of a trickle charge to get it jumpstarted. Find an old USB cable and cut off the end that plugs into a device (NOT the end that plugs into your computer USB port). You'll find 4 wires inside, but you just need the black and red ones. Strip those and tape the black to the "-" part of the battery and the red to the "+" part (making sure that the wires themselves don't touch). Make sure that the wires are making contact with the gold pins on the battery and plug it into your computer. There's no way to verify if it's charging, or how much it's charging, so leave it there for about 10 minutes, then UNPLUG FROM THE COMPUTER (so there's no power to cross) and then pull the wires off the battery. Put it in your phone and see if you can get it to power up.
    (this might sound daunting, but I've done it countless times, and it's really not that hard. Besides, it's a whole lot easier than taking it into verizon and letting them troubleshoot it!)

    But I have fully charged batteries already...I have extras and a wall charger just fit battires...I wonder if I could jump my actual X with this process?

    It happened twice to me. From my observations, I believe that when the battery is depleted, the phone does not have time to shut down properly and this interferes when trying to recharge later. I have another battery fully charged, so what I do is remove the depleted battery and remove the SD-card, then insert the charged battery. I power off the phone and then I put back the depleted battery. This time the phone is able to start recharging the battery.
